TEAM STAFF REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OVERVIEW
CALNORTH TEAM STAFF REGISTRATION
SFYS RECREATIONAL, SF CCSL PREP, CCSL COAST, CRL TEAMS
There are several parents that have been scanned because of work: SFUSD, UCSF, CYO Coach or other organizations. LiveScan is a one time usage scan and it is common for coaches to have been scanned by multiple organizations. Organizations are not allowed to share your data between agencies. You must be scanned specifically for CalNorth (ORI Code AE689).
Coaches scanned and cleared for CalNorth last year do NOT need to be LiveScanned again for the current 2017/18 season. IMPORTANT: This process can be quick or it can take months to clear and then finally updated in the system. We urge all coaches/managers to get scanned as early as possible so there are no delays in activating teams or making passes. *The number one factor in delay of clearance is failing to use one's legal name for both the LiveScan form and their Affinity Sports account.
** You are free to choose (at your own expense) an alternate authorized vendor, but we recommend using a Capital Livescan vendor since CalNorth has a contract with Capital and there should be no cost to SF Youth Soccer coaches at a CLS location.
